Vince Vaughn’s film career has been very variable, but it’s still good to hear when he got a new project in the works. He’s now in talks to headline DreamWorks’ remake of the 2011 hit French-Canadian comedy Starbuck, according to Variety.
The original is about a middle-aged man who has fathered 533 children through sperm donations. Given the nickname Starbuck, he struggles to decide if he wants to meet a couple hundred of his children, who have come forward in seeking him out.
It’s definitely a premise that could make an interesting movie. Original co-writer and director Ken Scott will remake his own film for American audiences. It isn’t known when the film will shoot.
